Daniel Taub’s Tenure As Ambassador Comes To An End

Trade relations between the UK and Israel have never been better, and a lot of this has been because of the incredible contribution that Daniel Taub has had towards both these countries. For the past four years, Daniel Taub has been serving as the British Ambassador to Israel, a position which he has to now bid farewell to as his tenure comes to an end.

In a statement made by the Israeli Embassy, the officials say Taub as a vital part of their growth relations, and no one could have performed the job as well as he did during the given time.

Analysts are now seeing the current trade relations that are going on between the two countries, and are referring to it as the golden era of trade, because of how much profitability it has brought to both the nations that are involved with this.

Since coming into power, Taub has given way to hundreds of businesses and corporations, so that they could set up their businesses in conjunction with the United Kingdom. This has not only provided better prospects for the company but has also helped the individual people who are behind these businesses.

This, in turn, has also opened up new opportunities for employment for people from Israel, providing them with better scope for financial security. The businesses that have been able to set up here have become a part of a booming multi-million dollar new economy.

Daniel Taub was born in the UK and lived the formative years of his life there. He was of Israeli descent and was extremely proud of his heritage and who he was. He has qualifications from some of the biggest and most prestigious universities in the entire world.

He holds one degree from Oxford University and another from Harvard. When he was twenty-five years old, he decided to uproot his life and go back to the land of his ancestors, which was Israel.

Upon moving to Israel, he started to work in the Israeli defense forces. Having lived in the United Kingdom for most of his life, he was seen as a good person to put on the international division of the defense forces, which is where Taub spent the next few years of his career.

After seeing a huge amount of success in this sector, he decided to switch over to the Israeli Foreign Ministry and worked there till he became the Ambassador for the UK.
